From the cover: “Why does old Len Cooper keep pestering Bill with scraps of metal from the buried wreckage of the Spitfire which came down during the Second World War? What was so special about the pilot that Bill should find himself haunted by Len’s persistent memories of the man? After all, it happened years ago. And what is the secret his parents are keeping from him? Bill finds the past resolutely catching up with the future in ways he could never have imagined, and more is unearthed in all their lives than merely the wreckage of an aeroplane and its reckless pilot.
